    Default Toolholder for keyseater? What make/model?

    The largest item is about 12x18 inches and feels like it weighs 50 lbs. I think all three hunks of steel fit the same type machine because they came together, but I'm not sure. Please ID the machine and how these are used, particularly why there are a few different broaches on the larger holder. Forgive my use of incorrect terms, I have no knowledge of this type of machine.

    Some markings are legible:

    Not for a keyseater, looks like tooling for a vertical surface broach. That's how pliers are made.

    Thanks, that's a huge machine for sure. They put out another vid you probably saw, looking at the work-holding part of a similar machine. Kinda funny in a way, all these huge complex mechanisms moving back and forth but when they pause momentarily these small human hands pop out of the wall and change out the two workpieces.
